Our website makes it easy to order your printed booklets and to help our trade customers supply the perfect artwork in a constantly changing industry we’ve published a guide to preparing artwork for booklet printing.
Use CMYK colour mode
Check that your booklet artwork and any pics are in CMYK mode and not RGB. We can and will convert it for you here, but some colours may look slightly washed out compared to how they looked on your screen.
Embed your fonts
When you embed your fonts you know that they’ll print correctly without the need for the same fonts at the printing stage.
Add bleed where necessary
If your design has images or graphics running off the edge of the page, you need to add an extra 3mm bleed past the page trim. With booklet printing as with other printed marketing you must extend any artwork 3mm further than the trim if you want it to go right to the edge. This means you’ll avoid the possible appearance of a thin white line once the document is trimmed to size.
Keep text at least 5mm from the edge of the page
Make sure any text or important artwork elements are at least 5mm from the page edge. This is called the safe area. You should leave even more space at the inside edges of the page near the fold so that text can be read easily. Check our artwork guides online if you’re unsure about this or any other aspect of preparing artwork for booklet printing.
Make sure images are embedded at 300dpi
All your images must be 300dpi at the size they will print. Lower resolutions will look fine on screen but will appear pixelated or blurred when printed. Also make sure your images are embedded or they won’t print correctly.
